Trump whines about the ‘dark days’ of the recession in Fox News op-ed — but doesn’t mention recent acts of terrorism

Published

In a Fox News op-ed, President Donald Trump touted job growth and a fear of the “dark days” of the recession as reasons people should vote for GOP candidates — but failed to mention the multiple acts of far-right domestic terrorism that took place in the US in recent weeks.

“For many Americans, the Great Recession brought dark days we will never forget – and never want to repeat,” Trump began in the editorial published Monday afternoon on the network’s website.

He went on to write that “thanks to Republican leadership,” Americans finally have “hope.”

Trump touted the 250,000 jobs added to the economy “in the last month alone.”

He did not mention that in October, a Floridian who is obsessed with him allegedly sent pipe bombs to multiple prominent Democrats and a man who raved online about the “migrant caravan” the president keeps bringing up shot and killed 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue.

“African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and Asian-Americans have the best job prospects in history,” the president wrote. “The employment outlook for women is the best in more than 65 years.”

After criticizing Democrats and claiming they would “take a giant wrecking ball to your economy and your future” if they gain majorities in Congress, the president implored readers to vote for the GOP.

“With your vote, we will keep lifting millions of our citizens from welfare to work, dependence to independence, and poverty to prosperity,” Trump concluded. “And together, we will build a future of safety, security, prosperity, and freedom for all our citizens.”

Alabama Republican: ‘I want to see more people’ get coronavirus

Published

on

On Thursday, Alabama Senate President Pro Tempore Del Marsh suggested that he wanted more people to get coronavirus — because he thinks America would develop "herd immunity" and reduce the spread enough to protect more vulnerable populations.

"I'm not as concerned so much as the number of cases. In fact, quite honestly, I want to see more people, because we start reaching an immunity the more people have it and get through it," said Marsh. "I don't want any deaths, as few as possible, say, I get it, but those people who are susceptible to the disease, especially more serious pre-existing conditions, elderly population, those folks, we need to, you know, do all we can to protect them. But I'm not concerned, I want to make sure that everybody can receive care."

The Secretary of Defense was briefed on Russian bounty on American soldiers — proving it isn’t the hoax Trump said it was

Published

on

Last week, President Donald Trump finally heard the news that the Russian government was giving cash to Afghanistan's Taliban forces to murder American soldiers.

Initially, he began with Step one in the Trump list of processing a scandal: denial.

"Nobody briefed or told me, @VP Pence, or Chief of Staff @MarkMeadows about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an "anonymous source" by the Fake News @nytimes. Everybody is denying it & there have not been many attacks on us. Nobody's been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration. With Corrupt Joe Biden & Obama, Russia had a field day, taking over important parts of Ukraine - Where's Hunter? Probably just another phony Times hit job, just like their failed Russia Hoax. Who is their 'source'?" tweeted Trump on June 28.
